There will soon be a new single out titled “NOBODY” by the South Korean girl bands (G)I-DLE, Aespa, and IVE. Releasing on November 16th, the single ‘Nobody’ marks the first-ever collaboration amongst members of the K-pop girl groups (G)I-DLE, Aespa, and IVE. Here’s everything we know.
When two or more K-pop acts work together, the results are bound to be spectacular. We haven’t yet shaken the amazing enthusiasm that GOT the beat brought us. Cross-group collaborations, however, are not as common as those involving artists signed to the same label. As a result, cross-organizational teams have the capacity to pull off the ultimate joint slay when the conditions are just right.
Fans were shocked when music outlet M:USB posted hints on YouTube and Instagram about a possible collaboration involving popular girl groups (G)I-DLE, Aespa, and IVE. On the 16th of November at 6PM KST (5 PM PHT), they will release a unique single with a promo video titled Nobody. Different groups were represented by distinct hues and three-dimensional emblems. Stay tuned to the M:USB YouTube and Instagram channels for the reveal of the three artists who will comprise the unit.

How have (G)I-DLE, Aespa, and IVE Established themselves as Prominent Figures in the K-pop Industry?
There’s a lot of rivalry in the K-pop and fandom industries. Everything in K-pop groups, especially female groups, is a competition, from the charts to the artists, the firms to the clothes. It’s not limited to the K-pop scene. All female artists, regardless matter their background, are constantly held up to comparison. So, this partnership probably won’t end world hunger, but it is novel, exciting, and long overdue.
Some of the most successful current-generation K-pop girl groups are Cube Entertainment’s (G)I-DLE, SM Entertainment’s Aespa, and Starship Entertainment’s IVE. Queen card, Next Level, and After Like are just a few examples of how these three groups are creating waves in the industry and establishing themselves as permanent fixtures; their cooperation will only add another notch to their belt as K-pop royalty.

According to Naver, a Korean news website, Korean writers, producers, and artists all contributed to the track. BoA, Taeyeon and Hyoyeon of Girls Generation, Wendy and Seulgi of Red Velvet, and Winter and Karina of Aespa have just established the supergroup Got the Beat to perform at music festivals and award shows together.
After debuting with the single “Step Back” in 2022 and subsequent live performances, Got the Beat finally released their debut EP, Stamp On It, in January 2023. Seulgi of Red Velvet, SinB of GFriend, So-yeon of (G)I-IDLE, and Chungha, formerly of I.O.I, and now a solo artist, produced a collaborative track in 2018 titled Wow Thing.

So, it’s not unheard of for female K-pop artists to work together, but the release of a single featuring (G)I-DLE, Aespa, and IVE—three artists from three groups under three labels—will undoubtedly go down as a watershed moment in the genre.
